You’ve Got a Friend by Lesley | Jan 22, 2014 | Devotion, God, Relationships, Spiritual concepts | 10 comments Winter Spring Summer Or Fall All you have to do is call And I’ll be there. You’ve got a Friend.—James Taylor 10 Comments Rudy on January 23, 2014 at 7:08 am Ahh, yes, a song that goes deep into my psyche because it was a song of my youth. Applying it to the Master feels so right. I sense the Shabda building toward a grand global seminar. Lovely photos, too, Lesley. Thank you for sharing. Reply Lesley on January 23, 2014 at 10:01 am Thank you, Rudy. After my morning contemplation this song came into my head and I felt the comfort in it. It was a revision in a way. In my youth it had a maudlin feel, but now that I am in direct contact with the true Friend, it is a much happier song.

Cumulatively, these “dark night” experiences will eventually coalesce in a single lifetime to birth a real seeker. Since I have been in Modesto (16 months) I have given away about 20 of Sri Gary’s wonderful book, SDJ. NOT A SINGLE SOUL has referred to it or asked me about it!! I am continually flummoxed to see this response…or lack thereof. It blows me away into the next quadrant! We have been blessed with “call out His Name”…and Him being here! Reply Lesley on January 23, 2014 at 10:03 am Al, I think that’s why this song hits so deeply: It really presents that dark night of soul and the solution to it. How amazing that, after all the seeking, we find the Friend right within. So grateful.

Reply Sheila on January 23, 2014 at 12:54 pm So true for those who are ready for such a Friend, who never fails to be there, closer than our heartbeats. Reply Lesley on January 23, 2014 at 6:16 pm Thank you all for your kind comments. The other favorite line in this song for me is, “Close your eyes and think of me, and soon I will be there to brighten up even your darkest night.” This has proven true for me countless times. Reply Jazzy on January 23, 2014 at 6:23 pm Amazing photo’s! I love that song and it brought back such sweet memories. Reply niki sebastian on January 26, 2014 at 6:58 am That song is the ring tone on my speed dial button to the Master. We are so blessed!
